Horseback through a vast private ranch land and ride along the trails on the North Shore countryside overlooking Waimea Valley and the Koolau Mountain range.

Description

Soak up the scenery of the beautiful Waimea Valley with panoramic views of the Ko'olau Mountain range and the azure waters of the Pacific Ocean. Happy Trails' friendly wranglers escort you through cool, sun-filtered forests, lush green ranch land, and wild tropical orchards. All rides begin with a riding briefing and lesson, designed to make even the first time rider feel comfortable in the saddle. Small groups of riders make tours more personal and safe, and children as young as six years old are able to ride their very own horse.

Reviews

A very enjoyable ride. Staff was great.

Mr. Anonymous

we had a great time. Mark is an awesome tour guide and obviously, a very experienced equestrian. The horses were beautiful, the ...scenery was breathtaking, and it was well worth the trip. Thank you to Hawaii activities for making it easy to book, thanks for the reminder calls, and thank you to Happy Trails. Heather Loome more

Heather Loome

We had a great time.Our guide Danny was the sweetest, most informative person. We had such a nice ride, the horses are so well tak...en cared of and so responsive to their riders. Some of the scenic views during the ride were breathtaking.Will do it again, next time I return to Oahu. more

Huguette

My 7 year old daughter and myself participated in the 2 hour trail ride. This is the perfect amount of time. Not to long, not to...o short. My daughter was thrilled to ride her own horse without someone leading it. Our guide was both personable and knowledgeable about horses, the landscape, Hawaii, and very easy to talk to. I would recommend this to everyone. The price, the horses, and staff were all wonderful. more

Suzanne

We had an awesome ride....the winter rains made the stable muddy but the manager insured we all had a dry place to get on and of o...ur well cared for and gentle ex-polo ponies. It was our 7 year old daughters wish to go horseback riding in the jungle while we were on her wish trip to Hawaii . She is battling cancer and the staff were fantastic and the care and attention made a little girls day. We would highly recommend this...the view is fantastic. It was a trip highlight. Thank you. more

The Braun family

Hi! I went to the Happy Trails for my 1st horseback riding, and it was great! I found this very relaxing and enjoyable, especial...ly I had never been on a horse before. The view was gorgeous, and the guide, Mark was very funny. He told me a lot about the valley, Hawaii, and the surfing! I went with a group of friends, and everyone loved it. Take a morning ride, and spend the afternoon on the beach! We went to the Waimea Bay after the ride, and it was so refreshing! more

1st Timer

Believe my guides were Mark and Ally. Though is was a little rainy the ride was excellent. The guides were very friendly and actua...lly spoke with you not just point stuff out. The horses are very well mannered and behaved. The horses did not just follow the other horse but you could guide them. They also did not appear so old that you were afraid they wouldn't make the trip. For any first time rider or someone with young kids I would highly recommend Happy Trails for your first experience. more

Keith

I really enjoyed the hourse riding! My friend had never ridden the hourse before, but the instructors were very nice to us and tau...ght how to ride well. We had a lot of fun! Next time when I visit Hawaii, I'd love to try the another one!! more

Mr. Anonymous

Thank you Mark and Dani for the exceptional ride and adventure. Our marcus, the 6 yr. old, wants to do it again, and I am sure he ...will share it with his teacher as well. Our daughter felt like she was back at home riding her horse; the horses are well mannered and well trained and are exceptional for any rider or any skill level. This is a must do in our book and we will be back again! Pam, Lacey, and Marcus more

The Klem Klan

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved our ride. Mark and Dani were both very informative and friendly. They were both willing and ab...le to answer any questions we had. The horses are well trained and easy to guide. The group we went with was a relatively good size. The trails are pretty and there are a few nice scenic spots overlooking north shore as well. Overall, we had an enjoyable afternoon at Happy Trails. more

Ms. Child

This was a treat! Me and my partner hadn't been horseback riding in nearly 30 years! The trail was spectacular and we had a... nice day weatherwise! Our tour guide, Mark, was exceptional! All the staff at Happy Trails were great . .. very patient with us that haven't ridden horses in years! The finale of this ride is the sweeping vista of the Waimea Bay and the ocean! We hope to come back next year in 2015 and do this again!! Aloha, Steve and Ken more

SteveKen

This was a wonderful experience. The guides were very knowledgeable about the history of the land and plants. It was a gorgeous ...ride. We would definitely do it again given the opportunity. more

Amanda O

We took our daughters (6 & 8), who have previous riding experience to do the trail ride. Mark, Heather, & Ashley were gre...at with them. They were very professional and we had a great time. more

Genia L.

My while family loved this! We went with our 6 year old daughter and they were very attentive to her safety. Horses were awesome ...and staff was fantastic! Will definitely do this again! more

Family

We had a blast. At first my son was terrified to jump on the horse, but the staff was so sweet and accommodating. They really made... a huge effort to helping my son feel safe and have a good time. We’ll be back. more

Tanya

This was a great ride. Two hours was the perfect amount of time, the one hour ride would have been too short. We got to go up hi...gher in the mountains and had some amazing views. There was plenty of shade and the scenery was beautiful. The horses were well kept, easy to ride, and the tack was in good condition. Patty was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. We did a ride two years ago on this island with a different stable and did not enjoy it very much. Thank you for not making us wear helmets. We will do this ride again when we return to this island. more

Debra Cooper

We had a great time and saw some wonderful country. Great views and relaxed time to enjoy space away from the noise and traffic. ... Our guide gave us good information on the area and was happy to answer our questions. The apple bananas were a wonderful taste experience also. more

Tom

Had a great time with my girlfriend. It was the two of us along with another couple, and seven Japanese tourist. The staff was ver...y friendly and informative. The riding tour was on a very nice trail through the quiet jungle, along with a few nice views of the island. For a cheaper price from most places, it was so worth it! more

Edward Thommes

Nice, easy ride through the mountainous woods of the north shore. The guides were very friendly and amusing throughout the 90 minu...te ride. I would suggest to anyone looking for a relaxing alternative view of Hawaii. more

J Johnson

The staff could not have been better. The horses were perfect trail ponies. We have gone on rides at several places on Oahu, Nort...h Shore was a nice change of scene from the others. Your climb a peak and then go down, nice. The top of the mountain was a great view, except for the windmills, which take away some of the magic. Regardless, I highly recommend this ride. more

Jerry Herberger

The horse riding was fantastic. The staff were lovely and the horses were safe and calm. The only down side were the unclean toile...t facilities which required us to drive into town to find suitable restrooms. more
